Baofeng BF-F8HP & CHIRP

Recommended Posts

Anyone with experience CHIRP programming this little gem of a Radio. 

Better yet, anyone have a CHIRP Radio template with all BC working Forestry simplex/duplex, Road channels and any additional channels of interest / Relevance.

Thanks in Advance

BCFS 2018 Baofeng v6a.csv

Here's a BCFS csv file for the Baofengs.

The way it was setup, there's every duplex frequency entered for each Tone, because it's a pain in the a$$ to change tones on the fly with those radios apparently (I wouldn't know, I use my own ICOM which itself isn't terribly straightforward). 

Let me know if it works for you!

I have the same radio, and am trying to build a Chirp file for the Alberta Freq's.  Having a **** of a time trying to get the repeaters (firenet) to work.   FireLine working fine.    Anyone have any suggestions?   Rx is great, but no Tx.

Most certainly a tone issue.   I think it's more formatting through chirp though, as the tones for Fireline all work fine.   I'll keep playing with it and post up the file if successful

You figured out the whole "offset" (plus or minus)? Instead of typing in the Tx you need to do math and figure out what the Tx offset is for all repeater freqs.

Well DGP if the old system is working fine then it confuses anyone that has Gov of Whatever on top of their paycheque. They need it to be as inefficient as possible in order to justify why their are more of them in the camp trailers than fire fighters on the fire itself.
